As expected, Left4Dead sequel will not be released before some content and updates will be released for the the first part. According to Valve:
“From a customer’s perspective, we think that given the sort of insane popularity of Left 4 Dead, that people are going to be super excited about getting a sequel to that.”
Further they said:
“We’re going to continue to do Left 4 Dead updates and release more content for Left 4 Dead, and then also have Left 4 Dead 2 coming out as well.”
It was inevitable I think as there was ever growing protest against the sequel.So they made a wise verdict and for the time being satisfied the burning fans.Of course,they wont want the sequel of 40 awards winning game to be a flop.
There is a complete interview of Mr.Newell at G4.Now I am curious about the new content for Left 4 Dead.I am not sure whether they will release the part 2 this year or they will shift it to next year.
